  2. Hey good people, it has been a while. I ran a speed test and my results have just freaked me out. I ran the test twice. each time clearing the cache with CCleaner and the default Firefox.<br><br>Check it out:<br><br>:::..

  3. jags4560,<br><br>Thanks for the quick reply. I ran across that page today. Majorgeeks has a decent one with a reg fix already written. I'm just trying to beat it back before it unleashes itself. I've done all the first steps. It's the registry editing that nearves me up. What worries me is that this thing has embedded itself within important "stuff" and if delete the entire key or folder, I'll take out other entries the machine needs to run. <br><br> I'm in for a fun one. Reminds me of the time......(Oh yeah, back-ups)
  4. Hello good people of testmy...<br><br>Just discovered "spywareNo" on my machine. It has not developed into the full blown, browser/machine hijacker yet. Apparently it waits five days to launch itself. I would imagine, in hopes that the victim is lulled into a false sense of security, and forgets where he acquired it. <br><br>Adaware found it for me the other day:<br><br>Started registry scan
  5. Funny... I live in Detroit.....They're getting all gussied up out this-away for the big day. You know, gathering up all the garbage and shoving it under the carpet. Actually, believe it or not, Detroit (the city) doesn't look too bad these days. Nowhere near what the media portrays. On the other hand, some people out here actually thought D-town was going to be the first NFL team to play in and host the SuperBowl at the same time..... ..... HAH !!!!.....I'm thinking Colts BTW, although It really doesn't matter as we're all about the Wings and Pistons in this house.<br><br>I wouldn
  6. hey pitbull, <br><br>Nice speed ! Are you paying for 8 meg ? How much does it cost. And if you're at 8 meg how are you pulling such nice speed ? <br><br>The other day I was showing 6.2 meg on the test, today : <br><br>:::..

  7. In response to dilatedpeoples.<br><br>A while back, Comcast offered their standard 4 meg for 19 bucks a month, for a six month trial. I jumped on it. A month into it, WoW came knocking to offer up 6 meg/sec...(using Comcasts' lines) plus digital cable w/ HBO,encore and starz, plus a dvr all for 89 bucks.....and he added that he would lock the price for two years. <b>(Shoulda took it !!!)</b> Anyway, took his number to think on it, and immediately called Comcast to tell them of this great deal, and mention as well that I was averaging 2 meg, like 200k/sec at best dnld.
  8. I'm paranoid by nature, but my zone alarm pro is stopping, or at least I think it is...constant attempts from ip addys that begin with 38. in the Washington DC area. I as well have nothing questionable going on, but since I live in an area with one of the largest muslim populations in the world...who knows. I was a little worried on my end, but your issue dwarfs mine. I guess no matter what protection we run, there's always someone out there who can one-up us.
  9. I want to thank all those who offered up advice as I lost my mind a short while back. (For those who remember.) I finally got all the bugs worked out...Without having to reformat !!! I used hijack this, much spyware removal, and I finally broke down and purchased Nortons After the nightmare of finding the exact version of my antivirus (to uninstall), and re-installing Nortons it all clicked into place.<br><br> And best yet, Comcast went and upped my speed to 6 meg while I was sleeping :<br><br>:::..

  11. I figured that since my machine only had slight weirdness maybe I was dealing with leftovers or a glitch of some sort. I just don't understand how It still always manages to start up. I even blocked it through MSCONFIG and the tray still shows the bullseye. Granted I cant use it. My spybot SD just found a DSO exploit and supposedly removed it. Another funny thing, I ran winpatrol and just now, as I was attempting to have it read running processes, it told me It could not run cos the file was gone. I don't know what's going on. maybe I'm a really lame PC user, or I have a slick little demon r
  12. Thanks guys, I tried the backlight...found nothing. I'll give spysweeper a go. What gets me is how after I uninstall MSAntispy the GcaServ still loads (or attempts to anyway) If I try to block it, it spawns another copy of itself. Like I said before, now I have two plus GcaServ processes loading at startup and even worse, Antispy won't scan. It starts to look like it wants to scan but then freezes. As well, I cant update my spybot, nor my yahoo toolbar anti-spy. Could this worm be so ingenious that it kills all of my other anti spyware ? I really don't want to reformat but it's looking like t
  13. Thanks for that. I had just downloaded the newest "malicious" removal tool from microsoft and it found nothing. PLUS, when I attempted to remove all of anti-spy, it spawned another copy of itself which is now taking up another 6 meg of my memory. When I try to block it from starting up, the machine goes crazy with hundreds of little spybot s-d windows telling me that gcaserv is reqesting permission to add itself to startup and the registry. I think I'm looking at reformat.
  14. Good day people !<br><br>I think I have an issue. I ran Startup Inspector and it showed my startup programs, but.....this time I got a warning telling me that this is not to be confused with the "real" MS AS. Here's what it looked like:<br><br> gcasServ Filename C:Program FilesMicrosoft AntiSpywaregcasServ.exe Params Required Not recommended Startup Location LM Run Memory Usage 6.3 MB Peek Memory Usage 6.5 MB Comments Added by a variant of the RBOT WORM! Do not confuse with the Microsoft AntiSpyware executable of the same name <br>
  15. I always use gamefaqs.com. Very easy interface. Good luck.
